The third largest city in South America, Lima officially dates back to the 1530s, when the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro founded it as the Ciudad de los Reyes (City of the Kings). Vestiges of Lima’s past are found everywhere—whether it’s the Spanish colonial-era churches and monuments that make up its historic center or pre-Columbian artifacts exhibited in its many museums. Modern Lima is a potpourri of Andean, European, and other cultures, and is particularly famous for its diverse food scene, which has earned the city the nickname “Gastronomical Capital of the Americas.” Explore with Context’s our Lima private tours.

Andres is very good. Knowledgeable, personable and engaging. He went above and beyond to give us a good day.
Andres was absolutely excellent; exactly what you would expect of a Context guide. He went in depth in to explain the pre-European history of Peru and the Lima area. He did so in a way that contextualized the rest of our visit. We went back to his teachings over and over throughout our trip as we visited different sites and museums. Suggested improvements: - the Lima section of the Context Travel website is underdeveloped. Only after we emailed with interest in setting up a tour were we provided with rough outlines of the suggested walking tours: historical panorama, social sciences, politics, gastronomy. These tour outlines should be posted on the website so that they can easily be reviewed online without emailing back and forth. A disclaimed can be made that these are just the common suggestions - the historical panorama tour that we took was quite long in terms of time; it seems that the itinerary is the same for the full day as for the half day and this is a point to consider for future tours as trying to fit the full day itinerary into a half day's time is probably too much. There may be a role for considering cutting some elements to make a tour that is comfortably done in 4 hours in the case of the half day tour.
Pisco tour was an excellent walking tour (which you sort of need when drinking so early). We learned a lot about the liquor and the cocktails, but also a lot about the neighborhood Barranco.
